Szeleta (Seleta) Cave

One of the most significant archaeological site of the country’s palaeo-anthropological studies was uncovered by Ottokár Kadic between 1907 and1913 upon the initiative of Ottó Herman.

At the entrance of the cave, not only bones of a number of bears, but also traces of a fireplace were discovered. When carrying on with the excavations, crockery fragments, polished Palaeolithic stone tools turned up from the subsequent layers. The bay-leaf shaped spearheads and other tools of early humans living here for several tens of thousands of years at the end of the Ice Age are known as the Seleta Culture.
